Not only is Trump expanding the conservative Supreme Court majority, he is also moving at record pace to fill the federal appeals courts with young conservative judges who will preside for decades.

Lisa Murkowski says the person who replaces Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court should be in the same mold as the retiring justice.

The four interviewed by Trump for the Supreme Court bench are Amul Thapar, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, and Raymond Kethledge, The Washington Post reported.

Many experts question whether Roberts, in particular, would be willing to go that far, given comments such as the one Collins cited, where he extolled the importance of stare decisis and also said that Roe was settled law.

Her supporters as having been a law professor herself at the liberal University of MI law school tout Ms. Larsen, who kept her last name after marrying a law professor.

It has become something of a ritual among legal junkies and Supreme Court watchers: After nine months of experts' telling all who ask about this-or-that hot-button, big-ticket case that "a decision is expected in late June", late June finally arrives, and the Justices release a raft of highly anticipated-and often highly controversial-closely divided rulings. Coney Barrett, who sits on the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago, is just 46 and would give Trump an opportunity to leave a long-lasting imprint on the court.

Trump on Monday said he interviewed four prospective nominees, with more interviews to come. He helped to develop liberal jurisprudence on the death penalty and was one of the first Supreme Court justices to raise serious concerns about the use of solitary confinement with death-row inmates. Trump also nominated 94 district court judges, with the Senate confirming 20 to date, and 15 judges in other key courts, of which the Senate has confirmed five. "Mike Lee." Lee is the only lawmaker on Trump's list of potential justices.

"The bottom line: Judge Barrett has given every indication that she will be an activist judge on the court", Schumer said.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump expressly promised that overturning Roe, which legalized abortion on demand in the US, "will happen" through his judicial nominees.

"I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade", Susan Collins told CNN's "State of the Union" program, referring to the 1973 landmark abortion decision. It's unknown whether the discussion was about Lee as a potential nominee.
